Get to know “FAT” family

Did you aware that fats are one of the 6 groups of nutrients that are essential for life? The other groups are carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals and water.

Fats and oils are generally called as lipids. Fats are lipids that are solid at room temperature while oils are lipids that are liquid at the same temperature. Confuse? Hehehe…to me, fats and oils are the same lar, both will contribute to my flabby tummy! LOL
